Update (2:41 PM) - Juan Soto has tested positive for COVID-19, so we need to make some adjustments. Moving some things around and now we got Mookie in the lineup! Image is updated. Good Luck!
The time has finally arrived! MLB Opening Day is here (seems so weird to say that on July 23rd…haha).
We have a two-game slate tonight with the NYY at WAS & SF at LA!
In terms of the weather, we have some concerns in the NYY at WAS game, however, currently the percentages of precipitation currently sit around 20-25 so we do want to keep a watchful eye on that game. Wind will be blowing out lightly to right-center in both games.
Let’s take a look at our FanDuel lineup:
On the mound, I’m going to go with Max Scherzer, as although the Yankee offensive lineup is tough, I think he has some of the best K-upside on tonight’s slate. I also think, on FanDuel that Scherzer will lower owned than both Cole & Kershaw which could give us a big advantage if we see a vintage Mad Max performance today.
Like the rest of the world, we’re going to be stacking the Dodgers, however, I’m just going with a 3-man Dodgers stack in Justin Turner, Corey Seager, and Cody Bellinger who all have great numbers against Johnny Cueto.
Gerrit Cole is arguably the best pitcher in the game, however, he is no stranger of giving up HR’s and to differentiate our lineup a bit, I’m going with a 3-man stack of Nationals in Eric Thames, Adam Eaton, and Juan Soto.
Rounding out the team, I need to get some value and I’m going to do that with rostering the Giants Wilmer Flores who had had some success against Kershaw and Hunter Pence, who we’ll need to keep an eye on to ensure he gets the start due to a minor foot issue.
I’m expanding my MLB database and trying to streamline it better. I’m hoping by the beginning of next week, I’ll have more stats/data in the writeups!
